    HR is pro-management, top heavy structure, extreme possibilities depending on teams (inconsistency)

    Disapproves of CEO
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Used to be a good place to get a variety of exposure, this has curtailed due to the hush-hush possibilities of restructuring
    - Embraced working from home, to the extreme of people who don't need them
    - Embraced Women in Finance, to the extreme that targets are set and people are promoted blindly, discriminating the other gender
    - Open communication culture, in some teams

    Cons

    - Inconsistencies in employee treatment in different teams, leadership style very much depends on the general manager of the division, ie can be pro-sucking up; or pro-productivity; and for people who leave the bank, some get exit interviews and some doesn't; so the good become better and the bad become worse
    - Top heavy structure, with most senior management external hires; the gap between middle to senior management is never addressed, despite big talk on transparency, retention and leadership programs
    - Go to HR for advice about how to go about discussing something about your manager and they tell you to go back to your manager
    - Team engagement score is put onto your performance scorecard, and people who have been told they under-performed are assumed to be the culprits of dragging the score down, and subsequently politically gotten rid of

    Advice to Management

    - Practice what you preach: if you truly want to improve engagement, get a true engagement assessment, not a manufactured one through scorecard
    - In some obviously top heavy team, replace the senior people who do nothing but talk to presentations. They are more expensive and less productive. Invest in the people who actually do work, eg. make revenues, support processes and perform analytics. it's a waste of money to have 100 GMs, 100 head ofs, 100 senior managers, 100 managers, 100 analyst.

    Pros

    NABs has really interesting workplaces.

    Cons

    There is an air of uncertainty like none of ever experienced before in NAB at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, I'm sure getting rid of the people who know what they're doing will help the profit this FY.
